Salsa Sexy Magazine today announced a fundraising event where all proceeds will go toward the medical expenses for Hamed. The event will allow attendees to help save a life while enjoying music and dance from around the world along with Mediterranean food, drinks and prizes.
The Attarhas, a local Atlanta family, had a family member living in Iran, Hamed, who was diagnosed with Leukemia. Hamed was happily starting his life, recently married when he received the terrible diagnosis. At the young age of 30 he faces fatal Leukemia, unless he undergoes an urgent bone marrow transplant. The Attarhas immediately brought Hamed to the U.S. to receive treatment with the greatest chance of success – more than 60 percent chance of a cure. Hamed sold his house, car and every asset possible to fund his life-saving treatment but still faces astronomical costs. Despite family donations exceeding $300,000, Hamed still faces a $200,000 shortfall to save his life.
Salsa Sexy Magazine is sponsoring an event at Fanoos Restaurant on Friday, November 4th to bring the generous people of Atlanta together to enjoy a night of music and dance from around the world featuring Latin, Persian, Arabic, Turkish and American rhythms.
“Salsa Sexy Magazine promotes health and wellness through dance. When I heard of our close friend’s life and death situation, I knew that bringing the generous people of Atlanta together for a night of diverse music and dance would be the perfect combination to support saving the life of this young man and celebrating health for all,” said Shahrouz Aliabadi, chief executive officer for Salsa Sexy LLC.
Advanced tickets can be purchased online via the Salsa Sexy Magazine website (http://salsasexy.com) for only $50 or attendees can pay $75 at the door. Salsa Sexy Magazine will match donations by 20 percent. People age 10 and older are welcome to attend. The evening will offer a free Latin dance lesson, dance performance, tapas dinner with two complimentary drink tickets, raffle of prizes, and a large dance floor to boogie to tunes from around the world.
